Six Things We Need To Know About The Fast Fashion Industry
The impact the fast fashion industry has on the earth has been a primary topic of conversation within climate change groups for many years now.
While the industry has been proven to lack reasonable ethical and environmental standards, many of us aren’t aware of exactly how fast fashion is violating these standards.
